Why Did We Create Saturday’s Child?

Why Did We Create Saturday’s Child?

Our founders Judit and Don Tydeman are world travelers and global citizens. It’s how they landed on the idea to bring salt from around the world to our loyal friends and customers at Salt Cellar. And because of their exposure to so many cultures and traditions they have cultivated a deep sense of commitment to humanity and to the planet.

 

The idea for a charitable giving program was hatched from this commitment. Saturday’s Child is a quarterly giving program whereby a percentage of all sales, during a specified timeframe each quarter, will be donated to a charity of their choosing. We named it Saturday’s Child because our intention is to provide support and funding to organizations who specialize in children and family issues – and when we think of a child on Saturday, words like free, energized, and bright come to mind.

 

The Saturday’s Child program kicked off — and indeed, was inspired by a desire to help the people of Ukraine who were suffering from the devastation of war there. We launched the program and earmarked the dedicated fund at Unicef to help children and families through the displacement and hardships they were and are experiencing. Thanks to our wonderful customers, we raised $4,620 over a 30-day period from about 300 different transactions.

 

This summer, our Saturday’s Child recipient will be the Autism Society. So many families, Don and Judit’s included, are impacted by autism. Did you know that autism is one of the most common disorders in the U.S.? And that more than 5 million people in the U.S. have autism spectrum disorder which affects 1 in 44 children? It is our hope that we can raise essential funds to help people connect to the resources they need through education, advocacy, support, information and referral, and community programming.

 

Thanks for being part of our Salt Cellar family; and thank you for helping us support worthy organizations with our Saturday’s Child giving program.

Ukraine Crisis Prompts Charitable Giving Promotion: Help Us Help Them

Ukraine Crisis Prompts Charitable Giving Promotion: Help Us Help Them

Once the news hit of the crisis in the Ukraine, we knew we needed to do something. In response we decided to create a monthlong promotion entitled, "Help Us Help Them"  to donate a 20% of sales to Unicef and its dedicated fund to help children and families through the challenges created by displacement and the hardships of war. 

“We are so proud that our customers wanted to join us in providing some relief to the people—especially the children—of Ukraine. We were able to raise $4620.00 over 30-days from about 300 different transactions," said Salt Cellar owner, Don Tydeman.

Thank you to all of our customers who contributed to this fund! As a result of the success of this program we decided to create a charitable giving program called Saturday's Child. A quarterly giving program designed to help organizations that serve children and families here and abroad.
